    It depends. Since IDW is a form of G1, the G2 characters retroactively become G1 characters so Drift remains a G1 character.

    In the Collector's Club G2 comic, RID (2001) Sky bite is a major character and is presented as a G2 character.

    Originally, G2 was a continuation/extension of G1 so technically, all G2 characters are G1.

    Well G2 is part of G1 so anyone in G2 fiction is G1 to me. That's how I see it.

    Since Dreamwave, G2 characters have been appearing in G1 fiction. The Laser Rods made a cameo in the Dreamwave ongoing.

    Just put an Ironhide head on him and repaint it along with the shins and the red chest parts and it's pretty much it.

    Wow, I guess there really aren't many G2 females... It would be cool to see the newer generation of Fembots to get some crazy G2 color variations :) 

    Crazy tangent, but you could decide that Arcee is G2, based on the IDW comic origins from Jhiaxus. Kinda how I like to include a Hot Rod figure in my collection based on how much he appeared in the original G2 comic. It would be quite a leap... but I think it could be argued, especially for a personal collection :)

    If you're looking for a good Ironhide head to use, I THINK the
    Given that the G2 comics, especially the British G2 comics tended to paint Hot Rod purple, I've always wanted a G2 deco based on that.

    By the way, a frequently missed G2 homage is Construct Bots movie dino fire Grimlock, which is based on a proposed G2 color scheme for a redeco.
